...
In a January 1, 2000 email, NDS Asia Pacific head of security Avigail Gutman wrote to NDS's European head of Operational Security, Ray Adams: "Cottle is still of interest.
...
Ms Gutman wrote to Mr Adams on March 1, 2000: "Bond [Cottle], in OZ, is still struggling, but is almost there, with reprogramming the european DSPC cards (not that this is too attractive, since they can easily fully enable the originals ... but they are running short on stock, so are looking for alternatives ...) He asked george whether there are any available cheaply in europe.
...
That was done primarily as Avigail feared that MM was about to become a threat to NDS products in Australia.

NDS's Asia-Pacific security chief, Avigail Gutman, emailed Adams that "it may even be to our benefit if these came out on the market first - taking the heat off Joyce and also taking away from Tooley's unique standing".

...
However, hours later, Gutman emailed Adams: "A release from Europe sounds good. Here's the software."
The Financial Review has found no evidence in the emails that NDS ever provided such products to Irdeto. In context, it appears Gutman intended the pirate software to be released on the internet.
In fact, a version of the Millenium Group's Irdeto hack for Australia was already posted on The House of Ill Compute, and NDS hacker Andy Coulthurst explained to Gutman how the codes on the NDS pirate website worked.
...
However, a month later, Gutman and Adams were discussing how to engineer Deubel's release on the grounds that it would further piracy of yet another system, Seca, used by Canal Plus.
Gutman had identified a Sydney hacker, David Cottle, as the best prospect to succeed Deubel in developing a hack for Irdeto in Australia.
...
Gutman protected Cottle, dissuading Irdeto from prosecuting him: "The objective of any current action would be to eliminate Cottle as a threat to any NDS systems but without disturbing his other hacking activities (as much as possible) .?.?.
